Cyber Essentials repeat testing and assessment fees

If you have not passed your initial assessment

The process to retake the assessment varies depending on the certification body you have selected for Cyber Essentials certification. Most certification bodies will let you retake the test but the majority will charge the same price as the original cost of the assessment.

Here at IT Governance, we offer you a reduction on the full price when retaking your assessment.

With us, if you have not succeeded in your Cyber Essentials certification application first time round, you are able to retake the scans and assessments at a fraction of the original test price if the scans are conducted within two weeks.

What can we do if we do not repeat our assessment within the required two-week period?

You will have to apply for recertification and will be billed for the full recertification cost. The costs of repeat tests, assessments and recertification are outlined below.

Costs exclude any additional consultant expenses such as on-site visits, where required.


If the application process is repeated within two weeks of a ‘fail’ notification:
